Dragon Dictation.

Dear readers,

Hi today I will be telling you about an app called dragon dictation. You talk into it and then it writes down what you say, but sometimes it doesn’t work. Say you tell it to spell “I want to get a hot dog, than I eat it” it may write  “I got a hot dog to eat me” see funny. But it also has its advantages; like that when you need to write something down you just say it. This is one good app!

I’m back

Dear readers,

           I am so sorry that I have not been writing lots through the year. I have been very busy with settling in, making new friends, and homework. So today I am going to talk about the types of dyslexia,  I am going to tell you about 3 today  they are , Trauma dyslexia” usually occurs after some form of brain trauma or injury to the area of the brain that controls reading and writing. It is rarely seen in today’s school-age population.

A second type of dyslexia is referred to as “primary dyslexia.” This type of dyslexia is a dysfunction of, rather than damage to, the left side of the brain (cerebral cortex) and does not change with age. Individuals with this type are rarely able to read above a fourth-grade level and may struggle with reading, spelling, and writing as adults. Primary dyslexia is passed in family lines through their genes (hereditary). It is found more often in boys than in girls.

A third type of dyslexia is referred to as “secondary” or “developmental dyslexia” and is felt to be caused by hormonal development during the early stages of fetal development. Developmental dyslexia diminishes as the child matures. It is also more common in boys.

These are only 3 0f them there is 1 more but I can’t find the 4th one right now I will post as soon as I find it. All the info from above is from a web site called http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/hp.asp .

Thank you for reading my blog it means a lot, because I won’t to get the word out about dyslexia. I think it is very important to get the word out. Bye for now G

Missing Home

Hi.  Sorry I have not been writing posts, it is because we just moved to Wainwright.  This post is about new schools.  I had just gotten used to my old plan at my old school for dealing with my dyslexia.  Then we moved and eveything changed – it was really hard.  All my friends were back at home (in Penticton) and I had to meet all new friends.  I know my family is with me all the time and that they love me, it makes things easier.

I found out that my teachers here are just as ready to help me as my teachers were in Penticton.  We are making a new plan and even though it is way different (and  harder) I know I will be successful because the goal is to help me learn and I have teachers and family to help me.

Don’t be scared or sad when your plan changes as long as you have your family around you and teachers that you want you to suceed, you will be ok.

Bella Thorne

Today I am going to talk about someone who inspires me.

Bella Thorne is a girl with dyslexia.

She is a great inspiration to me because she is an actress. She plays “Ce-Ce” on the TV show Shake it up!

She is one of my favorite actors.

She stars in a movie called Frenemies I have watched it three times!

Bella Thorne inspires me, that you can do anything when believe in yourself.

P.S. She is an awesome dancer

A Scientist…with dyslexia

Let’s play

Guess the Scientist!

This is a scientist with dyslexia. This person is well known. You use his invention every day. His last name is Bell. He has his own museum in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Guess who he is?

Alexander Graham Bell.

He was a teacher, a thinker and an inventor. Here is a pic of the first phone beside my mom’s iPhone.

Even if you have dyslexia you can do great things!

Welcome!

Hello, My name is Georgia.(but call me G)

I have dyslexia. My Dad told me that dyslexia means “Trouble with Words” so this blog is Trouble with Words for Girls.

I put together this blog so girls like you and me can can become friends. On this blog you will find interesting facts – for example did you know there are four types of dyslexia (my dad who is typing this for me, just said “really? I didn’t know that”). It’s true. I learnt that in a book called What is Dyslexia by Alan Hultquist.

On this blog you will find resources, fun facts, questions – I have lots of ideas. I will tell you about some of the resources I use at school and you can tell me what you use at school.

P.S. don’t be ashamed if your friends are all ahead of you in reading, my friends are and it doesn’t bother me because I know that I am unique and so are you 🙂

So, please keep on reading. Thanks for coming to my blog.
